New Visitor Center for Kinderdijk, a UNESCO World Heritage Site

After many years of preparation, this iconic piece of Holland finally opened its new Visitor Center in September 2019. The complete metamorphosis of the entrance ensures that visitors can count on a welcome to match the title ‘World Heritage Site’.

Merges into the open landscape

The Visitor Center was designed by Dorus Meurs and Michael Daane Bolier for M& DB architecten and merges into the open landscape in the most subtle of ways. Simplicity and transparency are the main characteristics of the new building, which was made primarily from glass.

There is a reception area where you can go for tickets or questions, a catering area with a terrace, and an iconic souvenir shop. The most notable aspect of the Visitor Center is the view from the roof, however. Visitors will enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view of the most unique windmill landscape in Holland.
